Dear Politicians

If you wish to protect children from bumping into pictures of naked people, then the correct way to do it is to set up criteria of acceptability, certify sites if they meet this, and then give parents the tools which would only allow their children access to that list, should they so wish it. It is not to attempt to control the entirety of the internet and turn it into your idea of a safe space.

Context.

(Is there a general child-safe accreditation system? If not, why not? It seems like the kind of thing that the government could get behind.)
